Inspired Instruments You Rock Guitar YRG-1000 Gen2
This is a MIDI controller that a "real guitar" MIDI (meaning thereby a guitar with strings and guitar sensations) ... Here, no rope on the handle; just "marks" of silicone and thickness to materialize ropes frets as well. For the image, so I would say that the handle is "touch".

Otherwise, everything is plastoc ... it's toy but it is not looking for a violin with AAA table. It is all ergonomic case. Volume, a joystick, full of buttons, which will all assignable via the computer ... I do not dwell too: you will find lots of information on the manufacturer's website.


The handle "without strings" is confusing ... but nice. Her shapely quickly takes its place in the left hand. The ergonomics are great, but I prefer to play with a set high sand. The guitar is indeed small: the body is "tiny" and the handle has a small pitch. Placed on the leg, it is not ideal IMHO.

After, it will be, and this is essential, new gaming experience that provide such an instrument.


Then ... that's complicated ... I was immediately disappointed by the sound board ... it's really low end. The guitar sounds are really pourraves compared to the smaller Chinese style low-end microphones anemic. Other sounds are a little Bontempi OldSchool back in the 80's: What is cheap. In addition, the headphone output breath and my mini-jack does not hold in place ... it starts very badly.
I leave the Fender Mustang, plugge the YRG (his first name, you'll understand) via the output jack on a fairly neutral simulation ... is better, less breath, but it does not improve very little credible internal sounds ... So disappointed.

BUT, the next day, I decided to only use it as a MIDI controller ... it is used for the USB cable, which also supplies the guitar .... need batteries blow. The MAC recognizes it without any problem ... Update Firmware, installation ControlPanel settings that allows full ... and launch LOGIC MAINSTAGE ... see what happens with real sampled sounds good.
While there, his mom sounds my chickens ... if you are smart enough not to start by the sounds of guitars, what I, idiot, I did. The comparison is hard for classical guitar since the YRG does not react like a guitar (I'm beginning to know, after 20 years) ... So we leave the land known to the sounds of piano and synth ... and there is the foot ... your hip becomes a Rhodes (or whatever you have in stock). With the strings section of the WORLD, the big, big slap ... I begin to understand how to play the right hand to react to the Velocity MIDI instruments. Oud, Bouzouki, Dulcimer, and even fewer things ... which foot ... a real Sitar on Paint It Black ... Monophonic and TAP mode, I tested all the flutes of the universe ... I love ... it's enjoyable. And I finish with stringed instruments of the orchestra ... violin, cello, it plays like a guitarist who come to buy ... a keyboard.

Basically, if you have good sound in your computer, the YRG is your friend ... otherwise, only it's just rotten


Animated recent months by a strong desire to strengthen my past experience in HomeStudio experiences, and seeking new means of expression in the case of a new musical project ... I was looking for various ways of combining instruments and computer ... Not comfortable with keyboards despite attempts, I could not find my hunger ...

If YOU ROCK GUITAR Gen 2 Inspired Instruments seems to be just a basic toy, plastic ... a controller for games on consoles, it is much more than that, and I think I have found my happiness.

Disappointed by the sound board ... baffled by this fucking weird handle without any rope. It's not a guitar, yet it looks like so. We must learn or relearn the proper positioning of his fingers, do not compensate all with a left hand strumme hard to hide the misery ... It should play fine in detail, in the shade, and intelligence ... this is not what plugge and play. By searching on the site's forum YRG, ​​I understand better some adjustments to make. Already, I put a favorite screwdriver to tighten a little more rope. And indeed, the Trigger reacts immediately better, whether in the game or finger pick ... Remember against by the roving, it is made for that ... there's guitars that will do very well. I even think I'll hand them a ride, history. Then there are internal settings via the Control Panel: sensitivity, decay, stuff what everyone will pay for his taste. The discovery of these options has made the instrument more playable for my taste ... but there must already know a bit.

IN SUMMARY: The You Rock Guitar is indeed an instrument in its own right ... between the guitar and keyboard between Tapping, Shredding, Jazz and PlayStation
It will take me a few months - I think - to tame:
- Do not play it like a guitar, or a guitar. We must therefore choose these sounds (and not internal ones I repeat, just zero) via a good software, and review its technical right hand and left hand.
- I have to take time in each mode, mono or poly, TAP (which allows, as its name suggests, the play only tapping ... need strings on the body therefore provide the impetus . You put your fingers on the handle and it sounds ...) and I discover in depth the internal settings (split the neck area or assignable to a MIDI channel strings, etc.).
- Must also master software, in my case, Logic MainStage MAC Os because the two combine in depth (you can assign the knobs of the guitar to control the software, send and receive MIDI messages, etc.. ).

BUT it is not a toy ... I would therefore recommend ... for my part, and honestly, I do not know if a MIDI guitar with sensor and all the mess would be better ... I've never had to hand ... but at 250 €, if it is not the best purchase I've made in the world of guitar is without doubt the best purchase I made as a guitarist frustrated knowing how to play the keyboard . And after sometimes seem to have been around a guitar or guitar in general, opens me today a world of limitless possible (to myself) ...
